The new Fornasetti exhibition in Sweden
From 14 June 2019 to 26 January 2020 Artipelag, the international art museum and multi-purpose space in the outskirts of Stockholm, will host the exhibition “Fornasetti Inside Out Outside In”.
It is the fruit of a collaboration between Artipelag and the Milanese atelier. Curated by Barnaba Fornasetti, Jessica Höglund, Valeria Manzi and Bo Nilsson, it develops a dialogue with the architecture of the museum that narrates the figure of Piero Fornasetti in all his complexity, revealing his many faces and encompassing his entire output, from paintings to drawings, from graphic art to furniture, from design objects to installations, right up to the contemporary work of Barnaba Fornasetti, the atelier’s current artistic director.
The title “Inside Out Outside In” refers to a dual journey: the journey that begins in Fornasetti’s imagination and transports his creativity onto everyday objects (“Inside Out”), and the unbounded journey into the dream world of the Milanese atelier that its creations manage to inspire in the viewer (“Outside In”).

Artist’s showcase at Fornasetti Store on Corso Matteotti
The Fornasetti Store on corso Matteotti is hosting an artist’s showcase exclusively for Milan Art Week.
